What do you enjoy most as a counsellor?
As a counsellor, my reward is that I witness positive change after teamwork with my client, like lower depression and anxiety. Sometimes, I feel inspired and touched by my clients when they talk about their dreams and strengths. I had an opportunity to work with diversified clients, learning more about society and social inequality. Some said I hear lots of sadness, grief, dark and grey sides. I saw how deep the family and past had shaped us. I witnessed their struggles, ups and downs, courage. I was impressed by how strong, positive, and powerful they are despite life difficulties such as sickness, disability, and being a single parent.
It is a privilege to be like a mirror to see the before and after changes, being there with them, whether it was the first time break up, surgery, or lost loved ones🌹
What counselling service do you provide?
I provide online (video), phone and in-person, walking sessions outdoor, facilitate Culinary art group. I also offer the old fashion way of email therapy. I provide a great deal of flexibility to meet clients where they are. You are welcome to explore different ways. I offer individual, couple, premarital and family counselling, all 50 minutes.
Please note for an emergency like suicidal or crisis intervention, please dial 911 or go to your local hospital!
How does email therapy work?
Email therapy slows the process down, giving more time for clients to reflect on thoughts. I strongly suggest you invest some time in writing your email. What you write is important! It is helpful to imagine that we sit together as you write. I would like to know how you feel as you write. It is helpful for deep commutation. Please note that online communication is by its very nature subject to hacking and is not always secure, so be mindful about what you write.
The couple, premarital counselling
People spend lots of money on wedding planning, but how much resource is spent on nourishing the relationship? Divorce and separation can be costly$ financially and emotionally. It is helpful to put premarital counselling on your list and talk about things openly instead of hoping your partner will change. Like many other things, a high-quality, fulfilled relationship takes time and effort to keep it in good shape.

Emotional Support Animal Letter
Emotional Support Animals (ESA) can be incredibly healing to people struggling with mental illness. They provide loving companionship and protection from self-harm. It is still essential to work with a counsellor to develop coping skills towards recovery. Your pet can potentially qualify as an Emotional Support Animal if it is facilitating your emotional needs. I only offer letters to long-term clients after enough assessment and progress are made.
I have a wide range of working experience, including public service, multicultural company, start-up, and self employee. I am helping clients level up and advance, finding career happiness.
